to pay twenty cents. Wo know Mr.

The Mason 16 celebration, at Charles
ton, Missouri, yesterday, wana oonplet
BUCceea. About tnre thousand people
Vfere in attendance, and. aothing .occur'
red to mar the pleasure of the occasion.
LH about flfteea talnutea after eleven
o clock, tho procession was formed In the
town, and began to move to Deal's
,grovo, naJi a mne distant, wnero a
stand for speaking had been greeted, and
where the meats for tho barbecue were
being prepared for tho table. At the
head of tho procession was Dr. H, S. Pe
trie, an chief marshal, and tho Charles
ton Cornet band, led by Kd. Wittlg. Tho
Masons led the van, and wcro followed
by tho Good Templars and citizens on
foot and In vehicles.
Without any unnecessary delay tho
meeting was organized, and Major It A.
Hatcher, of Cape Girardeau, was intro
duced as tho. orator of tho day. We can
not give even a synopsis of tho Msjor's
ublo address. It was, 111 every particu
lar, appropriate to the occasion, and
tho audience listened to its polished sen
tences with evident Interest: '
ThoTtcv'. Mr. May was next Introduced,
and spoko for a'long 'time probably an
hour. TheJloverend gentleman is, no
doubt, thoroughly posted on tho subject
of Masodry, and is yery cntbtiala'itlc, but
the audlcnco wero too hungry' to listen
attentively, and we four that- hi hoial
lies, and really eloquent sentences fel
upon too many inattentive cars.
. At tho conclusion of .the Kev. May's
address, tho signal for dinner was given, I
and tho long UblcJi'were speedily filled
with ladles, more than two-thirds of the
pcoplo being required to "wait for the
wagon." Taking advantage of this con
dition of affairs, the Rev. 'Braden, of the
Charleston Baptist church, gathered
about him the faithful of the Good Tem
plate, and talking for a considerable
length of tlmo talked one table empty
and another full. Uo eulogized the order
Ju glowing terms; and spoko with con
fidurable energy and prafso of that rule
which permits women to become Good
Templars, and share in the work of tho
After the dinner, which was Berwd by
the Charleston ladle, in a faultless man
tier, tho company again gathered about
the speaker's stand, anil were briefly ad-'
dressed, after repeated "call" had been
made, by Mayor Oberly, who, In some
mysterious manner, fdrgot abdut HU
Jdfm'rt duy, and branched oil' Into the
subjects of Cairo, Charleston, tlio sur
rounding country and railroad' tnatiertf'

ocrctnonies, the procession (henrformcd
